The Last Wave

Richard Chamberlain plays an Australian lawyer whose defense of a group of aborigines accused of ritual murder sparks dark dreams of the apocalypse. Peter Weir's 1977 thriller isn't free of the metaphysical baloney that buried his Picnic at Hanging Rock, but it's a much more effective film in genre terms—Weir does manage to deliver the goods. With Olivia Hamnett and David Gulpilil (the boy of Walkabout).
